ETA: I have been looking for the how to guide to do crop impaction surgery and cannpt find it. If anyone could give me the link it would be much appreciated. This little guy needs help soon. Thanks My frizzle roo has a rock hard crop and he doesn't look too good. Another rooster was chasing him away from the food so I started watching him closer this last week. And trying to get him enough to eat. Well he has turned into a junk food junky and I see he is losing weight. Yesterday he looked really weak and I feed him some eggs. But today he looks more red in the comb, but his crop is way way too hard. !!! I have never dealt with this and don't know what to do. What should I do? I think something needs to be done soon. ETA again: Well I think I have the info now. I guess I will try the massageing first and the oil. Just wondering about if the grit is for the crop or the gizzard? And what can I give him besides (including) the oil as he looks very very thin. Poor guy. I check a percentage of my chickens daily, but he is a scaredy cat so I didnt pick him up for a while, 2 weeks, plus he is frizzle and looks puffy. . And he has drastically lost weight these last two weeks. What do I give him to help get him going again?
